School Library Journal - 09/01/2015 PreS-Gr 1—Lulu the Ladybug Girl is back, and this time she's thrilled to play with her friend Finny (aka Grasshopper Girl)—but only because Finny has brought her Rolly-Roo, a large wheeled toy horse that Lulu calls "the most amazing toy in the world." Lulu's reluctance to play any game that doesn't center around the toy does not escape her friend's notice, and when the wheel breaks off, hurt feelings come to a head. Lulu works to repair the broken toy and her friend's hurt feelings in a believable, childlike way, and she soon realizes that friends are way more fun than toys. The story also shows an interracial friendship. VERDICT With conflict and dialogue squarely centered in a child's world and expressive watercolor-and-ink illustrations, this is a welcome addition to a beloved series.—Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Carroll County Public Library, MD - Copyright 2015 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
